Near-perfect Game5 aftermath

Only quibbles was an invisible Ben Wallace and (likely not coincidentally) giving up offensive rebounds.

But the rest was great. The 3 core guys shot fantastic, especially Ben Gordon who had his first huge game of the series. PJ Brown had a fine game as well.

And even Skiles escapes my ire this time, lots of important minutes for Tyrus Thomas, who delivered by jumping over the Pistons heads on both ends of the court.

This was impressive. At the very least it will leave Detroit (and their fans) a little more nervous than they thought they'd be last week, and when down 3-0 that's more than you usually can ask for.
